"When I arrived I was told that the appointment had been cancelled "
Posted by Handy960 (as ),
My Doctor recently referred my for a gastroenterology outpatient appointment, I received a letter with a number to call the choose and book service, DART.
I was told the most appropriate place for me was Launceston hospital and the next available appointment would be in December. I had to take the whole day of work and struggled through some very poor weather to attend this appointment.
When I arrived I was told that the appointment had been cancelled and they has tried to phone everyone, but I had not received a call or subsquently any letter.
The next available appointment was in a months time, I did call DART to see if I could get one sooner and was told they would definitely call me back by a certain date, which has now passed with no call.
Having to take the whole day off work is really inconvenient and I feel it would not of proven too difficult to call me and let me know about the cancellation.
